Civil & Structural Engineers

A small consultancy with big ideas!

Founded in 1989 by brothers Mark & Paul, Gadsden Consulting has remained a family owned and operated business ever since. As a multi-disciplinary construction consultancy, we are able to offer expertise across a wide range of sectors and projects. From structural design and inspections, to flood risk, highway and drainage design, we have the highly skilled and experienced team ready to help you design, instruct and build your project safely and efficiently.
As structural engineering consultants we focus on tailoring a package to suit the needs of you, the client. We do this by being flexible to find the best solutions as a design develops, using creative and forward thinking principles, and we pride ourselves on bringing sustainable practices to the design table.
Our professional family run construction consultancy is based in South Cumbria, right on the doorstep of the Lake District, a place that inspires us and pushes us to think and design dynamically and respectfully. This fantastic location means we are perfectly located to serve not only Cumbria, but the North West of England and beyond.
We pride ourselves on being one of the most reliable, forward thinking, and professional design construction companies in the North West, and we are excited to speak to you and help you develop and design a project as big as you have imagined.

What People Say?

We have worked with Gadsden Consulting for over 15 years, on a wide variety of projects, from sizing concrete lintels to large warehouse extensions worth millions (and everything in between). In that time, we have found the staff to be approachable, knowledgeable and professional. We like the fact that they listen carefully to our brief, giving considered, balanced advice. We have commissioned Gadsden Consulting to act as the Contract Administrator on our larger projects and would highly recommend them. We look forward to working with them in the future.

— Jonathan Blackhurst (Project Manager at CGP Limited, Broughton-in-Furness).

We have worked with Gadsden Consulting regularly for over 4 years on numerous developments within Cumbria and Lancashire. They are very approachable, have strong technical ability in their areas of expertise and a good work ethic in trying to meet tight deadlines, whilst maintaining an eye on good design both in terms of commercially and in its delivery

Wrenman Homes have been working with Gadsden Consulting for a number of years on various different schemes. We find their approach refreshing and unique in comparison to their competitors which we have experienced. Gadsden Consulting are a client focused engineering consultancy practice, they have a wealth of experience, reliable, efficient and also very understanding with client led amendments. I do not do recommendations usually, however I would have no problem in recommending Gadsden Consulting.
